Tough battles for Sussex at Loughborough

Sussex will be represented in all ten age groups at the Inter-counties Cross-country Championships, being held at Loughborough on Saturday.

Some teams are looking pretty thin and as we go to press it will be touch and go if we complete a scoring team in either the U20 or senior women’s age groups.

Saturday’s races will be a good test for many of the youngsters who will also be competing for the Sussex School’s teams at the English Schools Inter-counties the following weekend at Leeds.

Four medals for Sussex at National Championships

Sussex youngsters scooped up four medals, one gold and three bronze, on the first day of a busy weekend’s athletics. Brighton & Hove’s Amber Anning took the U20 400m title and club mate Tom Eames the bronze in the U20 1500m with Eastbourne’s Moyo Daramola the bronze in the U17 400m at Sheffield. While Brighton Phoenix’s Almi Nerurkar was a shining light on a rather quiet day for Sussex at Parliament Hill with a splendid bronze in the U17 National Cross-country Championships.
